Hello, everyone. It sure has been a long time since the last installment of The Art Barn here at Dinofarm Games. There are many reasons for the delinquency, but it probably mostly has to do with how dumb and stupid and idiot I am, but also that I’m working all the time on animations for AURO!
Today’s short post will be a brief update on a special effect in the works.
You see, when Auro uses the spell, “Jump”(working title) he uses magical wind to propel upwards, leaving behind him a spinning gust of wind called a “current.” Now I hope you all see how clever was with that title and how you shouldn’t let your girlfriends read this or else they’ll leave fake barf in your locker(haha).
This was a very difficult animation. It requires the transition from an omnidirectional jump effect into a looping dust cloud, into a dissipation. I went through several DRAFTS (all of which BLEW) before I got something I could take into the pixel phase. read more
